The Phil Tyler Thriller Series

Breaking Waves

Shifting Sands

Rising Tides


Past events cast shadows you can't outrun. Wayne and Phil knew that better than anyone, after Stevie died, way back when they were children. A pebble dropped in a pool. Ripples spreading outwards. Who knew where they would end?


When Winston encounters a disorientated, naked man on a country lane at midnight, the tale he has to tell stirs the interest of journalist, Phil Tyler. His enquiries draw him, his friends, and his colleagues deeper into a dangerous and disturbing world where nothing is quite what it seems.


The Lucky Seven nightclub has a bad reputation. For decades, the centre of Sefton’s underworld, it is cleaning up its act, ready to be the heart of a town centre development. Local journalist, Phil Tyler is drawn to investigate and soon finds himself in a world of conspiracy, corruption and crime where life means nothing. 


An enigmatic message from an old school friend takes Phil to Blackpool to walk the night-time promenade, night after night, and await a meeting and an explanation. During the dark nights of covid lockdown, however, danger lurks round every corner and, step by step, Phil is drawn into a terrifying nightmare world where he can trust nobody, not even his one-time friend. And on that trust, and the choices he makes, many lives will depend.

No-one who was aware of the events of September and October 20__ will ever forget them. For those people who were directly involved, the memory will haunt them to the grave. Recollecting the storms alone is enough to cause nightmares; but recalling the events which took place under the cover of that violence, well... that is another matter altogether.

It was to be an ordinary holiday by the sea for the Miller family, a chance to bond after difficult times; but when they meet a local family, the Trevelyans, they become embroiled in a dangerous and disturbing conflict with the unstable owner of Leybury Hall, and must face the terrifying truth of The Trophy Room.


Joe never imagined how serious the consequences would be. Maybe if he had, things would have been different; maybe he would have made a different choice.

Forced to flee his home, to leave behind his wife and children, Joe has to face a new reality. He must run until he’s caught and killed or he must turn and fight.
Set in England, in a not too distant time, Joe Savage is a story of hope in a timeless battle for decency in a damaged world.
